This update was done last week just before I fell ill for a few days! I have not got the dreaded virus but was on my back for a while.
Here are the contents of the update:
OPC Dorset - 2
TINSTAAFL Marriages - 6
TINSTAAFL Norfolk Baptisms - 1
Yorkshire Civil Marriages - 7
- Roman Catholic Baptisms - 98
- Roman Catholic Burials - 39
- Roman Catholic Marriages - 76
- Roman Catholic Congregational Records - 64
Durham Records Online - 6
FamilySearch Durham Graveyards - 4
This brings the total of records on the Online Genealogical Index to 404,005. I remember a few years ago when i first past 100,000 and I was amazed! Things are still growing and I am still finding new ancestors by using the site! The whole idea for the OGI was to create a tool for my own use but I quickly realized it would benefit others! Thank goodness for my good friend David Sheppard from the Forest of Dean who helped build the site for me. I see that over 28,000 searches have been done so far, my wife suggests half were my own searches, but I hope others have had success with their research using this tool.
Please pass the word on to others if you have found the OGI helpful in your research. I know it has saved me thousands of hours of research time. It has also been a good reminder of wonderful resources available online created by generous others who give away their work for the world to enjoy.
Until the next update,
